Infosys Foundation Invests INR 75 lakhs Towards Renovations at Nandi Hills
Infosys Foundation, the philanthropic arm of Infosys, announced that it has undertaken various renovation initiatives at Nandi Hills, a major tourism spot in Karnataka. To this end, the Foundation has invested INR 75 lakhs for the construction of new pathways and stone steps.
Nandi Hills, or Nandi Betta, is an ancient hill fortress in the Chikkaballapur district of Karnataka. It has historical significance on account of a battle that took place there between the British and Tipu Sultan in the 18th century.
Infosys Foundation’s restoration project involved the reconstruction of the pathways and steps that lead to the birth place of the Arkavati river, which originates in the lap of Nandi Hills. Also, some of the damaged walls near Tipu’s Drop were renovated and beautified.
